Typically, this story would start with “Have you ever wondered what type of animal best suits your personality?” But that would be a ridiculous way to start because surely everyone has had that thought at least once.
A 10-question personality quiz has skyrocketed since 2018 – appearing on CNN, CBS, the LA Times, and more, find out what kind of animal you are by asking simple behavioral questions.
Based on novel psychological ideas, the Animal in you quiz was created by the author of The animal in you Y Animal attraction by Roy Feinson, and has been taken by 23 million people.
The novel concept could be summed up in four words: “nature abhors a vacuum.” In functioning ecosystems, species and personalities take on a similar representation, requiring both genetic and behavioral niches to be filled in order to build the strongest webs of life.
For example, in Madagascar, where there were no large herbivores, lemurs, a normally small animal, grew to the size of gorillas. In Tasmania, an island without large predators, a marsupial (the thylacine), which again tends to be small and solitary, developed all the character and likeness of a gray wolf.
Instead of there being room for wolves or gorillas in an ecosystem, we could theorize that there is room for a large, physically dominant herbivore or a socially cooperative hunter. In fact, every ecosystem has at least 50 species that are needed for an ecosystem to sustain itself, so that they can spread and inhabit every available food niche.
Animals in our societies
the test raises questions on its size, aggressiveness and sociability, among others, to assess where it could end up in the animal kingdom, because the author theorizes that human societies act in the same way.
Our communities have room for the dominant aggressive types, for example, only to the extent that there are other sets of personalities propping up the social infrastructure.
Dominant and aggressive loners like tigers, who may work in the military or as a stockbroker, would have nowhere to eat if there were no flirtatious and sociable birds (waiters / bartenders) and loyal pack animals (cooks) for everyone’s staff the restaurants.
The test reminds us, like the great nature documentaries of yesteryear, that all animals have their own unique abilities and benefits to the ecosystem as a whole, and as charismatic as a wolf or a tiger, the bison, the rabbit of Cottontail or the iguana deserve only so much respect.
The test claims it is the “most accurate personality test on the web,” so Good News Network subjected various members of his staff to it. Geri was considered “the playful baboon”. In his case, he was right.
Baboon personalities were well suited for careers including journalist and artist, which he became: “If journalism is about paying attention to the world, then it makes sense why baboons excel in the field; sharp eyes, sharp mind and sharp tongue in one dynamic package … Sometimes seeing the world from a new perspective is all it takes to create exceptional art, which explains why so many famous artists are baboons. “
This reporter got a Foxes – the red fox: who by description fits perfectly, possesses characteristics such as “choosing subtlety and cunning over brute force” and “thriving when running their own businesses”, and who tend to be “hunter personalities … so generally in good physical shape and doing well in hobbies that challenge both mind and body. “
